This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal information you may have provided, thereby making it impossible to connect it to any particular person. The data is used for statistical purposes in order to improve our website and services.

Use of Google Maps

We use the “Google Maps” component of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google.”
Google sets a cookie in order to process the user configuration and data when the page with the integrated “Google Maps” component is displayed. As a general rule, this cookie is not deleted by closing the browser, but rather expires after a certain time, as long as it is not previously manually deleted by you.
If you do not agree with this processing of your data, you may choose to deactivate the “Google Maps” service and thereby prevent the transfer of data to Google. To do this, you must deactivate the Java Script function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use “Google Maps” or at least only to a limited extent.
The use of “Google Maps” and the information obtained through “Google Maps” is according to Google’s Terms of Use
http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html
as well as the additional Terms and Conditions for „Google Maps“

Some pages on our web site contain embedded videos that we host with YouTube. When you access pages on which a video is embedded, depending on your configuration, YouTube.com may set a cookie on your browsing device. For more information about YouTube and their privacy policy, please see the links below.

To protect your privacy to the best of our abilities, YouTube videos are embedded using the youtube-nocookie.com version of YouTube which does not automatically set a cookie on your machine when you load a page on this website that features an embedded video. Instead, a cookie may be set on your device, if allowed by your configuration, when you actually play the video. As such, by clicking ‘Play’ on videos embedded in pages on this website, you agree that, if your browser and computer configuration allow it, a cookie will be set by the YouTube.com domain.
